“The relatively low price of crude oil continues to provide consumers with noticeable yearly savings in the price of retail gasoline,” said AAA Hawaii Liane Sumida. “Pump prices are discounted by 75 cents per gallon or more in 26 states, and drivers in Alaska (-$1.13) and Hawaii (-$1.07) are saving more than $1 per gallon year-over-year.”


“Motorists can find current prices along their route with the free AAA Mobile app for iPhone, iPad and Android, available at The app also can be used by AAA members to map a trip, find discounts, book a hotel and access AAA roadside assistance,” she said.
